  1. Thank you. I will read this with great interest. I’ve been working for a couple of weeks on designing a portfolio of publically traded companies that will sell the hardware and software necessary to put the next wave of automation in place (fast food kiosks etc). I have not had much luck. Any thoughts on companies I should include? I’ll gladly share my results if you are interested. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for writing a new book on the coming of a robot workforce. I think I’ll buy a few and give them out to my senator and congressman. They’re the most clueless bunch.
